Well, just when we thought things were getting back to normal following a rock solid victory over Fulham on Sunday, the ever-crashing waves of the football world came crashing hard at Anfield on Monday.

There are countless topics to cover and catch up on so as usual, we rounded up the most significant for you to read up on. Managerial searches, milestones, transfer talks and more.

Let's jump right into things.

Ruben Amorim now "unlikely" for the Liverpool job

When Xabi Alonso told the world he was staying another season at Bayer Leverkusen to continue his project, the world immediately pegged the young Portuguese coach as the new frontrunner for Jurgen Klopp's soon-to-be vacant job.

He checked all the boxes as he was young, played attractive football, has a history of winning and is a great developer of young talent.

It all seemed too perfect, until it didn't. Multiple reports are coming out that Amorim is in talks with West Ham should David Moyes be let go.

In addition, there were no concrete talks between Liverpool and Amorim which meant it might not have been as close as we all thought. While this does not end his chances of coming to Anfield altogether, he can no longer be seen as the favorite.

Diogo Jota hits significant milestone during Fulham win

In recent times, there has been a clamoring that if Jota was healthy in the last few weeks, the finishing issues the Reds have endured might not have been so glaring.

This might have been proven true as on Sunday, when played through on goal by Cody Gakpo, Jota coolly slotted the ball in at the far post to seal the deal at Craven Cottage.

The goal was not only importnat for Liverpool in their chase for the Premier League title, but it was also a personal milestone for Jota as well. This was his 100th goal in English football, no small achievement at all.

56 of those 100 goals have come while playing for Liverpool and a lot of those came as a super sub. Imagine the numbers he would have were he to be a fixture in the Starting XI?

As it were, Jota still hit the century mark which a lot of talented forwards in the past cannot say they've done. Here's to a 100 more?

Liverpool continues away goal scoring prowess

With their goals on Sunday at Craven Cottage, the Reds have now scored in 20 consecutive Premier League away matches.

That is a truly remarkable feat when you consider that most teams Liverpool visit are typically parking the bus and trying to subdue the Reds attack as much as possible.

This is especially important as the two remaining fixtures this week are away from home, so Klopp will be hoping his charges can continue this prolific trend. For all the talk of Liverpool's recent goal scoring problems, they still have found ways to put the ball in the net.

This streak does indicate that despite the oppositions best efforts, when Liverpool wants to score, they can. It doesn't matter where the game is taking place.
